Are you passionate about using market insights to solve clients’ problems and drive their businesses forward?

Research First is one of New Zealand’s most trusted and respected market insight and consulting agencies. We work with a number of New Zealand's well-known organisations across a variety of industry sectors and constantly strive to delight our customers with real solutions and insightful reports. We are committed to building a supportive environment where our people can excel, and we aim to share our success with our team and the wider community.

Due to an expanding client base, we are looking to grow our Insights team and have an opening for a Senior Insights Analyst with a background in quantitative analysis.

About the role

Reporting to the Insights Manager, the role involves you taking ownership of client projects and working with the client to deliver innovative and solutions-based research together with strategic insights and recommendations. You will need a strong background in quantitative analysis and have an in-depth understanding of sampling, survey design, and using statistics in a market research environment. Key to the role is the ability to interrogate the data output to identify links and trends and to use the data to tell a story rather than to present numbers.

While an understanding of qualitative research methods is desirable, this is not the key focus of the role. You will also have strong project management skills with the ability to manage multiple projects at the same time and enjoy sharing knowledge and mentoring junior researchers toward career advancement.

At Research First things can get pretty frenetic so having a calm head and optimistic outlook will help you stay sane.
